7:04 am
as anyone with the flawed launch of let me say directly to americans you deserve better. i apologize. i'm accountable to you for fixing these problems and i'm committed to earning your confidence back by fixing the site. >> marilyn taverner claimed the website appeared to be ready to go right before the launch date. >> how about before october 1st was there a sense there was going to be problems with the website? >> no. there are always going to be issues with a new website. what i would call customary glitches you see, but zblochlt that contradicts testimony from contractors that told law makes last week they informed two weeks before the launch that a test had crashed the website. three weeks before the launch the contractors sent this report

warning there's not enough time for adequate performance testing. fred upton chairing today's hearing wanted to know more about what secretary sebelius was told and when. >> something happened along the way. fishes did not know how bad the situation was or they did not disclose it. sadly here we are five weeks into enrollment and the news gets worse by the day. >> upton has not called for sebelius to step down, but plenty of republicans have. 33 sent this letter to the president last week urging him to fire her. >> it's time for her to resign and someone else to take charge. >> reporter: secretary sebelius has brushed off calls for her to resign. she said last week most of the calls are coming from people a, she doesn't work for, and b, don't want the obama care website or programs behind it to work in the first place. >> nancy, thank you.
7:06 am
president barack obama goes to boton today to talk about the affordable care act. it's based on a massachusetts program that began when romney was governor. major garrett is at the white house. good morning. >> good morning. advisors no longer deny it was a mess or millions of americans are frustrated because they have to switch policies even though they thought president barack obama promised they could keep them because their current policies don't conform to new obama care insurance requirements. same advisors are quick to say the following, website is getting better and will be fully working in a month. over time they will be able to find better coverage and possibly health care subsidies through the website when it's fully operational. what does massachusetts have to do with this? as you said norah, with the first date in 2006 to pass the law requiring universal coverage penalizing businesses and
7:07 am
individuals that didn't sign up. the website had a tough roll out. people waited until the last minute to sign up. some parts of the law were delayed. over time satisfaction grew and most residents liked the law. that will be the president's message today. bumpy startups are nothing new for changes. obama care will eventually work out. that's a tough message but the only one the white house has. he goes to massachusetts to deliver it. >> thank you. top intelligence leaders are challenging reports the u.s. has been monitoring phone calls by millions of europeans. the national security agency director alexander testified yesterday on capitol hill that european spy agencies shared those records with the u.s. >> to be perfectly clear this is not information we collected on european citizens. it represents information that we and our nato allies have collected in defense of our
7:08 am
countries and in support of military operations. >> at another hearing, national sbel intelligence directors was asked about monitoring allies. he said american friends spy on the united states. >> some of this reminds me of the classic movie casablanca. there's gambling going on here. it's the same thing. john miller is here. >> good morning. clapper used the same one i used monday. either we think a like or he's a viewer. >> which is it? >> in the name of full discloe disclosure disclosure, he was my old boss before this job. >> let's get to the point. we do it to them; they do it to us.
7:09 am
is there something special aboutnyabout germany and chancellor merkel that makes them want to pay more attention to her? >> the answer is no. if you sit in the president's daily briefing, the hot items are terrorism nuclear prif ration. germany doesn't come up nor does merkel. there are times when there's a strategic issue that comes up where germany's position might be an issue. somewhere buried in the pdb there might be analysis. this is finished intelligence. what you take off somebody's phone is raw intelligence. in that analysis it may say merkel is saying to supporters she's going this way or germany is going that way. generally it's not a top of the pile item germany. no offense to germany. >> the headline we learn had the this accusation that we collected 60 million phone calls
7:10 am
in a month from spain. actually they pushed back hard on this. europeans gave us that information. why such a hard push back on that? >> first why the delay. they had to go to ally countries and say we share this information and going to ask to disclose that. they said go ahead. this is something you and i talked about the other day. if you watch homeland if they hit the house and grab a cellphone and say we haven't seen this cell phone. it may be his. the first thing you want to know is who he's talking to. dump what's in the cell phone. second thing is where is it talking to? people in the united states? is that a plot to blow up something in america. you run that against data to say what numbers has it spoken to in the united states. spain and other countries want to get in on that. they say we don't have the servers to save billions of phone records. they say when you run that
7:11 am
terrorist phone call is it talking to someone in spain? it's a service we provide. >> everybody does it to everybody. what about russians and the device they gave? >> that's a g 20 summit russians gave out a goody bag with all kinds of cool stuff for the g 20. one of the things in it was a new phone charger. this was the one i like. when you have a device like this you plug into your phone, it's supposed to put juice into the phone. it can also take data out. first of all, any g 20 delegate who goes and takes a goody bag that has something you can plug into your phone -- the other thing was a thumb drive to plug into your computer either immediately throw that away or give it to somebody they don't like. when the president is former head of the kgb has a guy saying
7:12 am
please have present for you, phone charger. >> give it to your friend. >> plug it into your computer at least five minutes. >> when you plug this into the phone -- anything you can plug in into a port you can take data out. >> it really works to spy on people. >> and it can charges the phone. it's a dual purpose device. >> where can i get one of those? >> what it's for, it will download contacts and numbers. in that it will give the intelligence service that's giving out the trojan horse the tools to get other select numbers -- >> perhaps tomorrow. >> media reports that china is calling a car attack near tiananmen square an act of terrorism. three suspects drove an suv into a crowd monday. they were kill along with two tourists.
7:13 am
dozens were hurt. a statement on the blog said nooif, iron rods and propaganda were found in the zuchlt police believe they belonged to a minority group in china. the dow jones industrial average and s&p 500 opened new record highs. stocks soared yesterday despite the release of a gloomy report. cbs news analyst and melanie hobson is in chicago. good morning. > good morning. so a new high for the dow. what's driving this? >> corporate america is in great shape. 68% have beat expectations. it's not just one industry. this isn't just finance or the tech headlines we've been reading. it's broad based not just america the entire globe. if you look at america, it's s&p
7:14 am
up 24%, dow up 19%. if you look at uk the foot say up 17 dax in germany up 24. nikkei in japan up 60. all of this proves what warren buffett said many time despite what we saw in washington markets are stronger than government. >> therefore markets are strong. what about the disconnect and what's the bad news? >> the bad news is that unemployment remains stubbornly high. we're at 7.2%. 11 million people in this country are still out of work. for those people who do have jobs wages have been really stagnant. people aren't making more than they made in 1999 unless you're at the top 1% of this country. for those people who own a home 15% still have their home under water, meaning mortgages are more than their house is worth. all of that has meant consumer
7:15 am
confidence has taken a hit. we're at a nine month low. that's been driven by what happened in washington in the last month. confidence got shaken. the gap between the wealthy and poor continues to grow. melanie hobson thank you. there's growing outrage over the deadly shooting of a 13-year-old california boy by a sheriff deputy. andy lopez was killed in santa rosa. the sheriff deputy said he shot him because he thought lopez was carrying a real gun. it turned out to be a toy. more than a thousand protestors marge marched through the streets yesterday. friends remember the victim. >> i have so many memories. it just hurts. i can't believe he's gone. i have sisters. we've all played with bb guns and all that. it could have been my sisters. >> lopez was buried tuesday. the deputy who shot him has received threats.
7:16 am
he is being given security while on leave. a dust storm is blamed for a pile up in arizona. visibility was near zero when the dirt blew across interstate 10. it caused a 19 car crash killing three and injuring 12 others. police say it's one of the worst chain reaction accidents in years. tonight is game six of the world series in boston. st. louis cardinals face a must win situation. the players will have to look past what could be an omen trouble with the team's flight. red sox up three games to two. mark is in fenway mark. i'm extremely jealous of where you are. how did you get that assignment? >> come on norah to fenway pa -- fenway park. >> this is game six. they'll win tonight and their
7:17 am
season is over. they almost didn't make it out of st. louis at all. they had mechanical issues causing nearly a seven hour delay. pulling in just before 1:00 p.m. central. not the way they expected to go into tonight's game. i want to give you a sense of how long it's been since a night like this has come for boston fans. the last time the red sox won the world series in game six here at fenway park was 1918. it was world war i, a ball park hot dog which locals call fenway frank costs 10 cents. the average ticket was only $1.65. the famous green monster behind me which has terrorized opposing pitcher, only 310 feet from home plate, that wall wasn't built yet n. 1918 red sox beat chicago cubs in six games here at fenway. it was babe ruth's second to
7:18 am
last season playing for the red sox before being sold to the yankees. that was the first time the star spangled banner was played at any major sporting ooefrt in this country. 95 years later, red sox nation is hoping for similar game six magic tonight. the theme of the season here in boston has been boston strong. it's a motto born after the marathon bombings in boston on patriots day april 15th where three were killed. boston strong has been a symbol of rezil ens. >> thank you very much. i hope it's okay to be a red sox fan and hope for a game seven. >> time to look at today's headlines. recipients find out today how much monthly payments will go up next year. cost of living adjustment is expected to increase 1%. that would be the smallest hike since adopted in 1975.

8:03 am
people are paying above or below that. >> are most people going to have to pay more on this plan? >> no. here's how it breaks down. about 38% of the people who are uninsured will fall into a category where they would be eligible for medicaid. that's for core people. and for some states they've accepted dollars to expand their medicare programs. then there's 51% of people who will get subsidies from the government, and they should be able to pay sort of a reasonable amount and probably less than what they're paying now. it's the 10% who are getting slammed. these are people who make more than that level at which you get a subsidy. so for example, this is a family of four that makes more than $94,200. those people are going to pay more for insurance across the country. >> can you explain -- we've been reporting first and jan krafrd has, about how many people are going to have to pay more for insurance. these are people who are
8:04 am
individually insured. why will they have to pay more? because their core plans don't meet the minimum requirements required by obama care? >> absolutely. and many insurance companies have been able for years to offer these interesting kind of insurance plans. you pay a huge deductible. you got bare bones coverage. if something really bad happen we're covering you but we won't cover your doctor's visits. under the affordable care act there's a minimum level to be offered. insurance companies are saying to offer that minimum care of coverage i have to raise your premiums. >> can i stop you right there. i saw the aetna ceo saying yeah we have to cancel a lot of plans. the minimal plans don't cover it. so do insurance companies make out huge under this law? >> it's hard to say. there's also going to be a huge risk for these companies. unless you can cherry pick young, healthy people to be part of your insurance plan then you have risk. no discrimination based on whether you're a man or woman or
8:05 am
pre-existing condition. >> is there a risk that people won't sign up. >> i think there's a huge risk. >> and if they don't. >> if they don't there's a huge risk this plan goes down the tube. >> the affordable care plan goes down the tubes? >> absolutely. i talked to three actuaries at big insurance companies they're running their numbers. and their numbers are predicated on young, healthy people sign up for coverage. all insurance is based on large pools of people. if we're not going to say we can exclude older, sicker people -- >> the age of 30 what is young? >> young is basically under the age of 35. >> police in china say five people are under arrest in a suicide car attack near tiananmen square. authorities are calling it an act of terrorism. three people drove an suv into a crowd monday into beijing. they were killed along with two tourists. seth doane is in beijing. good morning. >> good morning to you, norah. yes, that's right. authorityies here are calling it
8:06 am
an act of terrorism striking right in tiananmen square which in many ways is the symbolic heart of china. this, of course was the square that was the site of that massive 1989 student protest and uprising and the bloody government crackdown that followed. i wasn't far from the square in the middle of the day and could hear those sirens when that white suv went careening into a crowd of people killing two tourists and the three people inside. now, we are hearing that those are indeed suicide attackers. the police here in beijing started circulating names and were reported to sound like members of the uighur muslim minority from shengdong province which historically has had great tensions with the central government. this terrorist attack happening really at the symbolic haeft of this country in broad daylight. president obama is hearing tough new criticism of his

foreign policy. in an interview yesterday former vice president dick cheney said he doesn't trust the president -- trust the president to stand behind israel and keep nuclear weapons out of iran. >> you don't believe he has the best interests of the united states in terms of our national security in the middle east? >> i don't believe he does. >> you don't believe his word can be trusted? >> correct. >> that's a serious question. >> it certainly is. >> to say that to the president of the united states. >> that's right. >> in a democratic country. >> but i think this president is doing enormous damage to our standing, to our capacity to influence events. we are rapidly eroding our ability to have any impact on what's going on in the middle east. the last time we walked away from afghanistan, for example, back in the '80s, we'd been there heavily involved supporting the move against the soviets but then we turned around after the soviets departed. they got a civil war and osama bin laden and the training camps and the 19 guys that came here with box cutters that killed

8:09 am
they're not a good place to get a suntan in the wintertime. for six months of the year beginning in october, the sun is so low in the sky, it never reaches the valley floor where the town is. the founder of the town a foresighted industrialist, recognized the problem and put in a cable car to take the residents up the hillside and into the sunlight to keep them from getting a terminal case of carren fever during the long dark winter. even with norwegian stoicism the woman who leads the tourism authority says it can be a tough place to live. >> if people get sun, they'll be more healthy and they'll work better. >> if they get shade and shadow and darkness not so much. >> yeah, that's true. >> but modern technology may now have solved the problem. instead of bringing the people to the light, they've figured out a way to bring the light to the people. an array of mirrors has been installed on the hillside programmed to track the sun across the sky and reflect it
8:10 am
down into the town below. well, not into the whole town just into the town square. still, that may be enough. it makes a difference even that little bit of sunshine in the whole big dark town it makes a difference? >> it makes a difference. and this is the center of the town. >> so here we are and apparently it's worked. the sun is now flooding down here. but it was a touch and go thing this morning. you can control the mirrors, but you can't control the weather. for the longest time there was cloud cover here. when we awoke this morning, the whole valley was full of cloud and they stalled and they stalled and they played music and they made speeches. then finally the clouds cleared and the mirrors focused the light down here in the center of the town. a large crowd of people have gathered. they had a big party. and now they can celebrate that way for the next hundred years. gayle, norah charlie? >> all right, mark. for mark phillips they said let there be light.

>> don't you find though you are in a better mood when you have the sun and the light. >> i'd be depressed with six months of no sunlight. >> don't you think that too, charlie? >> yeah. >> i'm happier, get a better tan. >> so important for a girl.
